“Someone has to know it was his father! Neil wouldn’t kill himself! he loved living!”

“You don’t seriously think his father…”

“Not with the gun! damn it, even if the bastard didn’t pull the trigger he– even if Mr Perry didn’t shoot him, he killed him. they have to know that!”

okay so i see you're a dps fan from your about section and as u may have noticed from my url, so am i. hit me with a few anderperry headcanons for sleepover saturday? also anything else about the other characters that you want to talk about :)


  • Todd writes poetry, Neil performs it - usually with just the two of them, though
  • they often exchange jumpers, and not just for romantic reasons. their jumpers somehow fit the other better and both of them think the other smells nicer
  • the “flying desk set” becomes a tradition, sometimes they invite the others too
  • surprisingly, Knox is the first who notices their intimacy. he doesn’t tell, but his knowing smiles when he looks at the couple gives it away to the rest of the poets
  • Neil gets headaches a lot, usually because of his loud and boisterous behavior, and Todd sneaks into Welton’s kitchens and somehow manages to make the best hot chocolate and sneak it out without anyone noticing. it’s a mystery how he does it, really.
  • they leave each other small sweet notes on the typewriter
  • for example: “i hate your stupid face and can’t wait to kiss it after classes”
  • when they sleep together, Neil falls asleep first - and clings so hard that Todd has to wake him up if ever he needs the toilet
  • Todd hates all flowers apart from daisies, and Neil always makes sure to get one on his way to school from the theater
  • Neil annoys Todd when the boy is reading/studying so Todd starts writing on his face to shut him up
  • the writings usually say things like “i am annoying”
  • Neil pretends to hate them but keeps from washing that area on his skin for as longs as he can
  • they don’t kiss or have sex a lot. usually they just enjoy each other’s silent company, and it feels comfortable and they have grown into being unable to imagine themselves alone alone
  • Neil never dies

A random headcanon for each of the boys bc why not:

  • Knox is actually very good at poetry once he gets over Chris and starts writing about about better things like the cave and a certain boy named Nuwanda
  • Cameron loves chocolate. And while the boys pretend to hate him, he knows that the random chocolate bars in his pockets and bags and on his bed don’t appear out of nowhere
  • The saxophone isn’t the only instrument Charlie’s good at. He can play pretty much every string instrument known to mankind, and some occasional woodwinds here and there
  • Pitts accidentally creates a new staple snack for the boys: the nutella jam cake, which was never meant to be edible
  • Meeks actually is not good at everything, and has to take English lessons from Todd
  • Todd always lets his coffee go cold and then crashes on his books, Neil has to carry him to bed
  • Everyone thinks Neil is a natural at Latin, when in fact he stays up late just going through his books again again because he just loves the subject so much. Neil also smells of cardboard, for some reason

(also non-binary charlie dalton???? yes. canon.)

headcanon # 1

imagine the gang spending christmas together

- neil would bring everyone a santa hat, except todd, whom he brings a reindeer headband

- but then charlie steals it and uses some random red lipstick and draws a big dot on his nose and pretends to be rudolph

- DRUNK SINGING (because we all know charlie would spike everyone’s eggnog)

- but charlie would get more drunk then the rest oops

- knox would leave early to see chris, and give her the christmas present he got for her, which would be a beautiful necklace

- everyone got presents and got something they liked which is good!

- but when everyone passes out from all the food they ate neil gives todd a book of poetry he written for todd filled with love poems and even some photos of the two and TODD JUST TEARS UP FROM HAPPINESS but he kisses him to make it stop

🎄✨merry christmas everybody! i hope you have a great day! ✨🎄

For: paintmyspirit-green

Prompt: “Neil/Todd, AU in which Todd is the stage manager to Neil’s first Broadway play. (Please also include the other Poets as friends/cast members. Can be any/all of them but please be sure to include Pitts as he is my favorite).”

Notes: I have an awful quality version of the movie, so I’m sorry that the cap of Todd is so terrible.  I did my best lol.  Also, I just really like Gerard + Todd’s relationship so I ended up putting Neil off to the side a bit by making it just a conversation between Gerard and Todd about rehearsal… hope you enjoy, and happy holidays!  xx

“So you lied,” Gerard said as he pulled out of the parking lot after watching the rehearsal.  Todd had invited him (read: Gerard had invited himself after hearing about the super talented Neil Perry every single day). 

Todd shifted worriedly.  “About what?”  

Keep reading

Meeks: Picture it! Sicily, 1852!

Pitts: Meeks, I am in no mood; and besides, you weren’t alive in 1852.

Meeks: What, we can’t learn from history? It was mid-century, and a disillusioned Italy looked to the House of Savoy for leadership. Chris, our courageous leader - and not a bad dresser - thought, “Let’s regain some national pride and jump into this Crimean War thing.” Of course, there was a big kickoff party at Giuseppe’s beach house, and everyone came. Coincidentally, this was also the night her husband, Charlie, hit his sexual peak.

Pitts: Meeks, I am in here because of GUILT! This isn’t a story about guilt.

Meeks: This is a story about being a bad hostess! While Charlie had Chris in the bedroom with his saber around his ankles, two hundred hungry guests were strip-searching mice for a piece of cheese!

Pitts: Meeks, so what’s your point? That Charlie and I throw bad parties?

Meeks: That’s my minor point. My major point is, that like Charlie, you’re screwing around in the dorm room while there are important things to do outside!

headcanon #3 (i think???)

the boys in a party

neil- he’s THE ONE THROWING IT. he’s overly excited about the whole thing, constantly walking around and asking people questions. “do you need more food?? should i put the heat on? change the music???”

todd- THIS WEE LITTLE BABY IS SHY AS FUCK AT FIRST. stands in a corner, awkward small talk with another random shy kid. BUT WHEN HE STARTS TO WARM UP, HE’S ON. i’m talking rambling all night, laughing, making jokes. he brings life.

charlie- DO I NEED TO SAY MORE. he’s the drunk ass fuck dude who tries to sleep with EVERYONE in the party. come on. you knew this.

knox- THE DRUNK CRIER. takes ONE SHOT… and then he’s sobbing and threatening to text his ex.

cameron- THE ONE WHO’S TRYING TO CONVINCE KNOX NOT TO TEXT HIS EX. basically the sober friend.

meeks- the VIDEO GAME NERD. the one who plays Just Dance and absolutely CRUSHES everyone who dares to compete with him. he’s a boss.

pitts- the DRUNK DANCER. he’s always in the middle of the dance floor, DANCING his ass off, and he looks ridiculous. Yet everyone is amused, in a good way.
